Adolf Loos (10.12.1870 - 23.8.1933) is one of the most important and influential architects of the 20th century. In his architecture he tried to combine tradition and progress and opposed radical developments. His approach often appears contradictory and complex - therefore Adolf Loos remains misunderstood in many ways to this day and his work, which focuses on the interior, remains hidden.
In the anniversary year 2020, we want to make both known and hidden Loos buildings and interiors accessible to the public for the first time via guided tours. In addition to the guided tours, lectures, panel discussions, theme walks and excursions to the Czech Republic (Brno, Prague, Pilsen) are planned in cooperation with other institutions.
We wish you much pleasure with your personal Loos discoveries 2020!
